    Anyone of you guys read this month's Scientific American?

    Where's Marlon when you need him? :smile: ~Kitty

    Anyone of you guys read this month's Scientific American?

    Possibly. I'm not overly knowledgeable about it.:blush: Thats why I was asking. However, common sense would lead one to think ther would be a spark causing a short circuit. :smile: ~Kitty

    Anyone of you guys read this month's Scientific American?

    It doesn't seem all that different in concept. If nothing happens as Antiphon said then they wouldn't cancel each other out, would they? ~Kitty

    Huh. Who hypthesized that? I think its very interesting. ~Kitty

    Heard about anti-protons and anti-electrons

    Never heard of that akcronym (sp?) before. I'll have to remember that one. ~Kitty

    Forewarning: I'm here to learn about this so excuse me if I sound very stupid. Zelos, how can you have negetive mass? ~Kitty

    Heard about anti-protons and anti-electrons

    Zelos, the statistic of matter to anti-matter is so disproportioned! I know there is much more matter than anti-matter, but that is the first actual figure I have heard (or in this case read). Where did you come up with that particular figure? Has anyone begun to speculate why there is so...

    Heard about anti-protons and anti-electrons

    I can see your point. I think. I've had a long few days :frown: . Anyway, the anti-d would difficult to store, but how would you even go about that? It would have to be some kind of container, but how would you know the contents of the container won't react with the container itself? Thus...

    Heard about anti-protons and anti-electrons

    I was reading about this yesterday. :smile: Its really interesting. I was wondering why quarks only have a fractional charge. The way they combine to create a whole number charge makes sense, but why only fractional? The other question I had was since only part of the mass of a particle comes...

    Heard about anti-protons and anti-electrons

    It does. Thanks Norman. :smile: If the anti-particles can theoretically combine to create atoms wouldn't it be easier to detect those than it would the particles themselves? Working on that theory there could be an entire perodic table of anti-elements so to speak. Is there a way to test...

    Heard about anti-protons and anti-electrons

    Astronuc, if there are said places in the universe where such quantities of anti-matter exist why are they all clumped together instead of dispersed more freely around the universe? What might cause them to group together in a mass quantity like that? Could there be a force that would cause...

    Heard about anti-protons and anti-electrons

    So what can you do with anti-particles? ~Kitty

    Heard about anti-protons and anti-electrons

    I've heard about anti-protons and anti-electrons. The particles of the same mass but opposite charges. When they combine they create energy because their charges cancel them out. :cool: I can understand that. However, when I was talking with a physicist who goes to weekly home groups with my...
